US slaps 220 per cent duty on Canadas Bombardier jets

first_imgWASHINGTON – The Commerce Department slapped duties of nearly 220 per cent on Canada’s Bombardier C Series aircraft Tuesday in a victory for Boeing that is likely to raise tensions between the United States and its allies Canada and Britain.Commerce ruled that Montreal-based Bombardier used unfair government subsidies to sell jets at artificially low prices in the U.S.“The U.S. values its relationships with Canada, but even our closest allies must play by the rules,” Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said.Canada responded by saying it “strongly disagrees” with the U.S. move.“This is clearly aimed at eliminating Bombardier’s C Series aircraft from the U.S. market,” said Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s minister of foreign affairs.Bombardier, meanwhile, called the decision “absurd …. U.S. trade laws were never intended to be used in this manner, and Boeing is seeking to use a skewed process to stifle competition.”In April, Boeing charged that Bombardier had received at least $3 billion in subsidies from the governments of Britain, Canada and the province of Quebec. The Chicago-based aircraft manufacturer asked the Commerce Department and the U.S. International Trade Commission to investigate the alleged “predatory pricing.”Specifically, Boeing said that Bombardier last year sold Delta Air Lines 75 CS100 aircraft for less than it cost to build them.“Subsidies enabled Bombardier to dump its product into the U.S. market, harming aerospace workers in the United States and throughout Boeing’s global supply chain,” Boeing said Tuesday.But Delta has said Boeing did not even make the 100-seat jets it needed.“Boeing has no American-made product to offer because it cancelled production of its only aircraft in this size range — the 717 — more than 10 years ago,” Delta said in a statement Tuesday.President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to get tough on trade. He has repeatedly criticized Canada, saying it unfairly blocks U.S. dairy products and subsidizes its softwood lumber industry. Trump also has threatened to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement if he can’t negotiate a better version with Canada and Mexico.Boeing’s complaint against Bombardier drew a backlash even before Tuesday’s decision. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau threatened this month to stop doing business with Boeing, which is in talks to sell Canada 18 Super Hornet jet fighters. British Prime Minister Theresa May has discussed the case with Trump. Her concern: Bombardier employs more than 4,000 workers in Northern Ireland.Connecticut Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy last week wrote a letter urging U.S. government officials to “refrain from taking action that will endanger the many jobs in Connecticut that depend upon Bombardier.” Engines for the C Series aircraft are made by Pratt & Whitney, based in East Hartford, Connecticut.Commerce’s findings Tuesday aren’t the end of the matter. The department is expected to announce its findings in another case against Bombardier early next month. Then the International Trade Commission — an independent federal agency that rules on trade cases — will decide early next year whether to uphold Commerce’s duties.Bombardier could appeal any sanctions to a U.S. court or to a dispute-resolution panel created under NAFTA. The Canadian government could also take the case to the World Trade Organization in Geneva._____________________________________Gillies reported from TorontoFollow Paul Wiseman on Twitter at https://twitter.com/PaulWisemanAPlast_img read more

German expert panel agrees 2038 deadline to end coal use

BERLIN — A government-appointed panel is recommending that Germany stop burning coal to generate electricity by 2038 at the latest, as part of efforts to curb climate change.The so-called Coal Commission reached agreement in the early hours of Saturday, following months of wrangling that were closely watched by other coal-dependent countries.Germany gets more than a third of its electricity from burning coal, generating large amounts of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.The 28-member panel, representing mining regions, utility companies, scientists and environmentalists, suggests a review in 2032 could bring forward the deadline to 2035.The plan also foresees billions in federal funding to help affected regions cope with the economic impact, and to shield industry and consumers from higher electricity prices.The decision still needs government approval.The Associated Press read more

UN agency applauds Security Council resolution on sexual violence during wars

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has welcomed the Security Council’s call for an immediate end to all acts of sexual violence against women and girls in conflict situations.Calling the resolution, adopted unanimously last week, “a historical achievement,” the Fund’s Executive Director Thoraya Ahmed Obaid said it would go a long way to protect the dignity of women and girls.“While sexual violence against women in conflict has often been ignored and considered a marginal concern, it in fact cuts to the very core of the existence of the women who are victims of this crime.”The resolution, which says sexual violence against civilians is often a tactic in war, demands all parties to conflicts take concrete measures to prevent and respond to violence, such as by training troops and upholding military discipline procedures.It also says sexual violence crimes should be excluded from any amnesties reached at the end of conflicts, and calls on States to strengthen their judicial and health-care systems to better assist victims.Ms. Obaid said the resolution is “a strong reminder to the international community to recognize the need to address sexual violence in a quick and efficient manner, and to realize that as long as women and girls are threatened by such violence, there can be no real chance for peace and security.” 25 June 2008The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has welcomed the Security Council’s call for an immediate end to all acts of sexual violence against women and girls in conflict situations. read more

Culture of prevention vital to peace and security Portugals President tells UN

“The strengthening of preventive action in Africa, for instance, is essential to avoid many crises facing the continent,” President Marcelo Rebelo De Sousa said, pledging his country’s continued support for deploying military contingents for peacekeeping operations. Portugal will promote maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea and support Guinea-Bissau in constructive political dialogue, he added.Turning to the other side of the Atlantic, he welcomed the peace agreement reached in Colombia, saying it will pave the way for national reconciliation, enabling all Colombians to live together in peace and respect for the rule of law.He expressed hope for a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying there is still a way to build peace and a sustainable settlement of the conflict. There can still be a sovereign, independent and viable Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel, whose legitimate security aspirations must be guaranteed.He also expressed concern over the recent escalation of threats to security and stability in the Korean Peninsula, which he condemned, calling for the resumption of collaboration between neighbours and the international community.Terrorism is threatening humanity everywhere and cannot be tolerated, he said, stressing that the international community has a lawful right and a moral duty to end it. The root causes of the exodus of refugees and migrants must be dealt with by Governments eradicating terror and fear.Another issue underlying the humanitarian crisis is the increasing wave of migration linked to the lack of opportunities in origin countries. He stressed the importance of promoting higher education for refugees in emergency situations so that “no generations are lost.” Portugal has already accepted more than 100 Syrian university students, he noted.On the issue of human rights, he said there is still much to be done in the area of gender equality. Portugal will maintain its commitment to global mobilization efforts for the conservation and sustainable exploitation of the oceans. The issue of protecting oceans and seas is a top priority for Portugal, which will remain committed to supporting the efforts of small island developing States to overcome the challenges facing them. Mr. De Sousa is among the many leaders who will address the general debate of 71st General Assembly. The Assembly began its high-level work this year with the adoption of the New York Declaration, as the outcome of yesterday’s first-ever UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants. Made up of all the 193 Member States of the United Nations, the Assembly provides a forum for multilateral discussion of international issues covered by the UN Charter. read more

The Biggest Surprises From Week 1 Of The NFL Season

sara.ziegler (Sara Ziegler, sports editor): It‘s been quite an opening week in the NFL — and that’s just on the field. We started with an old-fashioned defensive slugfest on Thursday and ended Sunday night with the Patriots still looking like the Patriots. And we still have two games left tonight! Throw in a tie for good measure, and the season is off and running.There was a lot to unpack in Week 1. What were your biggest surprises of the week?Salfino (Michael Salfino, FiveThirtyEight contributor): I think the Browns are the biggest surprise of Week 1. Not just Baker Mayfield and the offense — because maybe the Titans have a good defense. Who knows at this stage of the season? But the Cleveland defense, which seemed like it was perfectly designed to dominate in the trenches and on the perimeter with the corners, was just shredded. Marcus Mariota had 10.3 yards per attempt, admittedly inflated by a screen pass to Derrick Henry. And the Titans ran the ball well. So it was just a total team collapse by the Browns.sara.ziegler: I do feel like Cleveland was classically set up for this disappointment. Our model didn’t think the Browns would be nearly as good as everyone else seemed to think they would be.neil (Neil Paine, senior sportswriter): Yes, we had warned Cleveland fans to kind of pump the brakes before the season. This was a good-looking team by Browns standards, but that’s different from being a good-looking team, period.Salfino: I know this is a little Narrative Street, but the Browns really set themselves up to be the hunted and not the hunters with all the offseason talk. I don’t know if there’s ever been a team coming off a losing season that had every opponent circling their game on the schedule. Maybe now they will just shut up and play because obviously there is a lot of talent there. Maybe the humiliation on Sunday in Cleveland will actually be good for them, since they needed humbling.neil: For me, the biggest surprise was Lamar Jackson. He was one of the worst QBs in the league as a rookie last season, and the Ravens adapted their offense to be incredibly run-heavy (particularly by 2018 standards) because he was such a better runner than passer. So to see him come out and throw for 324 yards on 17-for-20 passing, 5 TDs, 0 picks and a perfect 158.3 passer rating was nothing short of astonishing.You could have told me a QB would do that Week 1, and I would have guessed 25 QBs before Jackson.Salfino: The tricky thing with this game is whether the Dolphins are the 1962 Mets — or did the Ravens make them look that way? Let’s put it this way: If the Dolphins are trying to lose, they couldn’t have done it any better.neil: That’s a great point to keep in mind. The Dolphins have been accused of tanking all offseason, and they played like it Sunday.Incidentally, what’s the opening line on Pats-Dolphins next week? I shudder to think.Salfino: New England minus-14.5 at Miami, up to 17 now. That would put them among the biggest home underdogs since 1970.sara.ziegler: And now Miami players are reportedly asking their agents to get them off the team! Not great.neil: What was your biggest surprise, Sara?sara.ziegler: Arizona! Loved to see the fight from Kyler Murray and Co.neil: Fighting back for a TIE, no less.sara.ziegler: So great.neil: That’s just fighting back for the love of the game, not the glory. Lol.Salfino: Murray was Tebowing on Sunday: horrible for most of the game and then turned it on in the fourth quarter. I guess the slow start was opening day jitters. Maybe it was a mistake to not use the regular offense in the preseason.sara.ziegler: That’s a great point, Mike.So many of these offenses have looked SOOOOO bad. Maybe a few more reps in the preseason could help?neil: Maybe this is the year the “rest the starters all preseason” trend jumps the shark.Salfino: Start with Mitch Trubisky and the Bears.sara.ziegler: And Aaron Rodgers and the Packers!neil: That game was SO ugly.sara.ziegler: It kinda hurt to watch.neil: Although if they were going for symbolism with the NFL of 100 years ago, they kinda got what they were asking for.Salfino: Bears-Packers set back offensive football 100 years, so….sara.ziegler: So true.Salfino: I just am skeptical about changing the offensive system of an inner-circle Hall of Fame player — especially someone as generally grumpy as Rodgers — with that young of a coach who has not proven anything. How does this work? I would have given Rodgers Mike Shanahan — someone he had to respect — if you want to switch to a Mike Shanahan offense.sara.ziegler: Our colleague Josh Hermsmeyer wrote about the Packer play-calling that might have been holding Rodgers back last year … but I’m skeptical, too, about changing that on a dime.Salfino: And it’s kind of like, “Mike Shanahan is standing right here.” But the league is all about young coaches now. Does this work with a 35-year-old QB though? Will the QB, especially this QB, buy in?sara.ziegler: Hahahaneil: But at least there, you can use the coaching change as an excuse. Maybe they’ll find more of a rhythm as the season goes on. There were no such excuses for Trubisky’s poor performance.Salfino: For Trubisky, we kind of know what he is, right? His ability to execute plays that work as designed is definitely below the line. He sort of has to play with his hair on fire, out of structure, so he’s a tough player to design an offense for.Based on one game, I’d set the Browns over/under at nine wins, the Ravens at 10 and the Cardinals at six. (I mean, it was Matt Patricia blowing a game, right?)sara.ziegler: HahaWhat’s the over/under at Patricia still being the coach in January?neil: That’s the REAL over/under to worry about.Salfino: I think Patricia has to be a favorite to be fired in-season. The Dolphins aren’t going to fire a coach. It has to be a team that thinks they’re good with a “franchise” QB, I assume.neil: The funny thing is, Matt Stafford actually played well overall, with a 110.0 passer rating. But the defense badly collapsed down the stretch.sara.ziegler: Who else stood out? Philadelphia? Kansas City?Salfino: I wrote about the impact a downfield weapon has on the entire offense, regarding DeSean Jackson. That certainly was a factor in Sunday’s Eagles win, though Jackson did most of the damage himself. But now the best of these players for Kansas City, Tyreek Hill, is probably out a significant amount of time with a shoulder injury, and I wonder if this will slow down the Chiefs offense. Sammy Watkins was unreal on Sunday, but he did a lot of that damage with Hill in the game. Does the Chiefs offense seem more mortal now?neil: Not to mention that Pat Mahomes was hobbling around on a bum ankle.Salfino: And he no-looked away a TD to a wide-open Travis Kelce like he was Meadowlark Lemon.neil: If Mahomes shakes off any effects of that ankle — and it’s not supposed to be serious — they still have a lot of weapons even without Hill. But they were a team everyone was already wondering about perhaps regressing offensively, just because the highest-scoring offenses usually tend to fall off some in the following season.sara.ziegler: LeSean McCoy looked decent as one of those weapons.Salfino: They do seem to have an endless supply of super-athletic players, but Hill really dictates coverage and makes defenses more easy to dissect. The McCoy thing is interesting — Damien Williams still had 65 percent of snaps, compared to just 30 percent for McCoy. But how does Andy Reid tell a guy like McCoy — with over 14,000 scrimmage yards who just outplayed Williams — that he’s sitting behind Williams? I have to think McCoy is the primary back near term for the Chiefs — and he may be washed up, I know.Speaking of running backs, not a good day for Melvin Gordon.sara.ziegler: 🤣Salfino: You want to say that RBs are fungible, but Austin Ekeler is not just an ordinary backup. He’s electric. I think him leading a committee is perfect, and the Chargers are now 5-0 since 2018 without Gordon in the regular season.sara.ziegler: Not gonna lie: I forgot for a second about the Gordon holdout. The Antonio Brown drama just eclipsed everything.neil: Austin Ekeler:Melvin Gordon::James Conner:Le’Veon Bell ?(I think I got my SAT analogy format right there?)sara.ziegler: Very nice, LOLSalfino: Well, the Steelers looked like they missed Bell and Brown on Sunday night.neil: Steelers looked like they missed a lot of things Sunday night.Salfino: I think the story with the Steelers is that Juju Smith-Schuster is not a downfield wide receiver, and they have no one who can threaten defenses deep like Brown could (even though he was used all over the field). So the Steelers offense looked suffocated on Sunday. There was just no room to breathe.Ironically, the team on the field that really needs Brown was the Steelers.sara.ziegler: It was hard to watch that game and not think, “Oh, the Patriots are unstoppable again.”Salfino: But why even add Brown? I guess it makes sense if you are worried about Josh Gordon’s status, given that he has not completed an NFL season since 2013. But if you know you have Gordon — which of course you can never know — Brown is another mouth to feed and obviously a volatile personality on a team that does not remotely need his talent. Put it this way, if the Patriots had not signed Brown, the story off that game would be, “Of course they shouldn’t have signed Brown because they are a finely tuned machine right now, so why mess with that?”neil: That’s true. It sort of adds diminishing returns on the field and the potential for chaos off the field. But maybe they wanted extra insurance for Tom Brady at receiver with Gronk retired.Salfino: Brady is 42. He threw the ball very well, especially deep. But the expectation with an older player is that he will fade as the season progresses. It’s really the Patriots and Brady vs. Father Time. That’s the Battle of the Ages, not New England vs. the NFL.sara.ziegler: I just assume it’s part of the overall Evil Plan that Patriots always execute to perfection.neil: I will say this. I have compared Brady’s downfall (whenever it happens) to Peyton Manning’s in 2015, in the sense that when it does happen, it will probably happen very quickly. But for whatever one game is worth, Manning already showed signs of what was to come with a terrible opener that year against Baltimore. Brady, on the other hand, was perfectly fine. So if you’re mentally tracking the odds of a Brady collapse in 2019, those odds had to go down quite a bit just after a game.Salfino: But what about Peyton in 2014? Isn’t that the example that the Patriots (and Saints) have to fear? That did come all at once. And we ignored it heading into 2015, mostly, attributing it to nagging injuries, which probably was the point. Peyton started 2014 with 22 TDs and three picks in seven games.neil: True, while Brady was not great in the Super Bowl and had a mediocre game or two down the stretch, he wasn’t consistently struggling late in 2018 as much as Peyton did in 2014. So maybe that does mean the writing was more on the wall for him than Brady, anyway.Whatever happens, I love Week 1 because we’re all so eager to overreact to every little thing that happens once real football starts. So I wonder which things that seem clear right now will end up looking foolish in a couple months.sara.ziegler: Can’t wait to find out!Check out our latest NFL predictions. read more

Première un Américain séquence son génôme pour se soigner préventivement

first_imgPremière : un Américain séquence son génôme pour se soigner préventivement États-Unis – Suite à l’analyse de son génome, Stephen Quake est la première personne au monde à bénéficier d’un traitement préventif contre les maladies susceptibles de le toucher un jour.Ce professeur de bio-ingénierie est à l’heure actuelle en bonne santé. Cependant, à cause de ses antécédents familiaux, il pourrait souffrir de maladies cardiovasculaires et être un jour frappé de mort subite. Le séquençage de son génome a permis de déceler les éventuelles maladies dont il pourrait être victime. Il s’est en particulier focalisé sur les gènes associés aux maladies cardiovasculaires.Il a ainsi été mis en évidence que l’homme possédait trois variants de gènes associés à des maladies augmentant le risque de mort subite. Un variant pouvant augmenter le risque de maladie coronaire ainsi que des polymorphismes qui moduleraient le risque d’infarctus ont également été identifiés, tout comme des risques de diabète de type 2 et d’obésité. L’homme de 40 ans a depuis commencé un traitement préventif anti-cholestérol. Le séquençage du génome était encore, il y a peu de temps, une entreprise très longue et onéreuse. Ainsi, le tout premier séquençage avait coûté 2,7 milliards de dollars. Aujourd’hui, 10.000 euros seraient suffisants et bientôt, 1.000 euros à peine pourraient permettre de réaliser un séquençage. Cette approche offre de nouvelles perspectives pour l’élaboration d’une médecine préventive personnalisée.Le 9 mai 2010 à 12:18 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Ministry Of Health To Lead CleanUp Exercise In St Catherine Communities On

Speaking at the launch of the clean-up day at the St. Jago Park Health Centre in the parish on Wednesday (February 18), Acting Chief Medical Officer (CMO) in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Winston De La Haye, underscored the importance of personal responsibility in preventing mosquito breeding. “This isn’t an issue that the Ministry of Health alone can solve. It is the responsibility of each individual to identify sites where water settles and get rid of it. Remember that a drop of water is enough for the mosquito to breed in. We need to punch holes in cans and get rid of all of the bulk waste that is unnecessary and can potentially collect water,” he said. He informed that similar activities will take place in other parishes, and highlighted the importance of communities undertaking clean-up exercises.“This isn’t a one-day event. We are starting with areas in Spanish Town and Portmore and we are encouraging all Jamaica to come on board. We are expecting that after Saturday persons will be active in their communities and in their homes destroying breeding sites,” he said.The team, which includes Ministry of Health personnel, vector control workers, stakeholders and partners, will meet at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday at Portmore Pines Plaza from where persons will be deployed to the two Portmore communities. The group will move into the Rivoli community at about 1:00 p.m.Other partners in the clean-up effort include the Ministries of Education and Local Government and Community Development; and the national response team, which comprises the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM), National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Jamaica Defence Force (JDF), Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the Social Development Commission (SDC). “It is a multi-sectoral affair,” Dr. De La Haye said. “No one Ministry is able to address the situation. Zika isa preventable illness and we need to do everything we can to get the mosquitoes out of the way,” he pointed out.Dr. De La Haye is inviting members of the public to join the effort, noting that special focus would be placed on the gathering of bulky waste for removal by the NSWMA.last_img read more

ExMan United youth coach Eric Harrison passes away

first_imgManchester United have announced that former youth coach Eric Harrison passed away peacefully on Wednesday night.The 81-year-old joined United as a youth coach in 1981 from Everton and famously oversaw the Class of ’92 team that consisted of the likes of David Beckham, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs.Harrison also worked under another United legend in Mark Hughes as an assistant manager at Wales for four years and won an MBE for his services to football last year.Since 2014, however, Harrison had been living in a nursing home after being diagnosed with mixed dementia and died on Wednesday.“We are extremely saddened to report that our former youth coach Eric Harrison passed away last night,” read a statement on United’s Twitter.“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eric’s family and friends at this sad and difficult time.”Also paying tribute was the legendary United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who praised Harrison’s contribution to football and labelled him one of the “greatest coaches of our time.”“Eric’s contribution to football and not just at Manchester United was incredible,” said Ferguson.“When I came as manager I was lucky enough to have Eric on the staff as head of youth development, so I got to see the work he did and not just with the Class of ’92 but with all the young players.“He built character and determination in those young players and prepared them for the future. He was a teacher, he gave these players a path, a choice and he only did that through his own hard work and sacrifice.“He was able to impart that education to the young which made him one of the greatest coaches of our time.”Former United midfielder Beckham wrote on Instagram:  “We’ve lost our mentor, our coach and the man who made us.“He taught us how to play, how to never give up, how important it was to win your individual battles and what we needed to do to play for Manchester United Football Club.“He was always watching and always with us every time we played, I can still hear him telling me NO MORE HOLLYWOOD PASSES.“I can still see him as we played on The Cliff training ground looking down on us either with a proud smile or a loud bang of his fist on the window knowing any minute he would be on his way down to probably advise me in the most polite way to stop playing those passes.“More importantly he made us understand how to work hard and respect each other and not just on the pitch.

Charges loom in catshooting case

first_imgThree teenagers accused of shooting more than100 cats agreed Tuesday to postpone arraignment so that prosecutors can have more time to decide whether to try them as adults.In a tightly packed courtroom, Mitchell Kangas, 16, Jaren Koistinen, 16, and Riley Munger, 17, appeared before Clark County Superior Court Judge Rich Melnick to waive the speedy filing of charges.The three were arrested the night of June 5 in Battle Ground in connection with a string of animal shootings in northern Clark County.Prosecutors are deciding whether to charge the teens with drive-by shooting, a crime that means they would have to be tried as adults under Washington law. Prosecutors are also considering lesser charges of animal cruelty and unlawful discharge of a firearm, which would mean they would be tried as juveniles instead.Tom Phelan, attorney for Koistinen, told the judge that defense attorneys are continuing discussions with prosecutors on the case. Deputy Prosecutor Kasey Vu also said that he’s still receiving police reports, as the case has a number of alleged victims.Melnick set a new arraignment for July 26.The teens, who are free on bond, left the courtroom quickly afterward with several family members and supporters in tow.Koistinen and Kangas were sophomores at Battle Ground High School and Munger a junior at La Center High School when they were arrested.They were implicated in the shooting spree after a resident called police June 5 after her cat was shot in the face. She saw the shooters and described their SUV to police, according to court documents.last_img read more

Pegge Erkeneff, Communications Liaison with KPBSD: “To retain essential elective offerings for 9th-12th grade students in Soldotna, and ease the teaching position reductions caused by a potential rise in the Pupil-Teacher-Ratio (PTR), this move will create an economy of scale that will lessen the amount of staff reductions and allow for more core and elective offerings for Soldotna 9th – 12th grade students. The consolidation and school move will result in a savings to the district of approximately $630,000.” Erkeneff: “The district office will work with Mr. Graham to determine other site administration duties and other staff allocations and duties. A plan will be developed to address equipment and supplies from both buildings, and communications with staff, students, parents, and the community.” Tony Graham will continue to be principal of the consolidated Soldotna High School.  The District Office will work with Graham on determining other site administration duties and other staff allocations and duties.

In addition, the board voted to relocate River City Academy to Skyview Middle School. District administration will work with both schools in a similar manner to Soldotna High School and Soldotna Prep to facilitate River City Academy’s move to Skyview. This savings would come from reduced building operations and personnel costs to operate the current building housing two schools.last_img read more

How Chairman Mao Charles I and Alexander the Great could make you

first_img The sale of Picassos Women Of Algiers last month for $179.4m (£116.8m, €159.4m) illustrated just how far the collectibles investment market has come, but its not just rare paintings that are pulling in astronomical sums of money.The market in stamps and rare coins, typically viewed as the preserve of anoraks, is seeing an increased level of interest, particularly from wealthy Chinese investors.Stock market listed Stanley Gibbons, the largest collectibles merchant in the world, connects individuals with the stamp and coin market. IBTimes UK caught up with Keith Heddle, managing director of the 159-year-old firm, to talk about the how collectibles play a part in long term investment planning.What price a stamp?The worlds most expensive stamp was sold last year for $9.5m. In comparison [to the Picasso], it pales. But actually, if you do a size to value ratio, it would probably make the Picasso worth something like $15bn in proportion, Heddle says.While there is a perception that the high value collectibles market is only accessible to the ultra-wealthy, Heddle explains there is no such thing as a typical investor. Pensioners, entrepreneurs and young families planning their legacies are investing in the growing market.It really covers the gamut of investors. If there is a truism, they tend to fall between either the very risk averse that love the tangibility and the uncorrelated nature of it, or the more entrepreneurial that have built a business by doing things which are a little bit more left field and are now looking at this and saying: stamps, coins, thats quite fun, which is something quite unusual, Heddle adds.Investors are often buying a piece of history. A block of Penny Blacks, the worlds first stamp that bears the face of Queen Victoria, can fetch up to £120,000, depending on condition. A coin minted by Alexander the Great is worth about £4,000.One of the most interesting coins Heddle has is one showing Charles I clasping a sword, ready for battle with Oliver Cromwell. It is the biggest British gold coin ever struck and is worth between £80,000 and £100,000.With over 60 million stamp collectors globally and about $600m changing hands in each year on eBay, there is no dearth of interest.Why invest?Stanley Gibbons typically sees returns of anything between 7% to 14% per year, but some longer term investors have seen their returns swell to 202%. Interest in the market has grown substantially over the past five years and since the global financial crash.You can see those types of returns as long as youve got a diversified portfolio, have a long term perspective and youre focused on capital appreciation buy and hold. Theres been a common theme running through investors: fundamentally to protect the wealth they have sweated over for a lifetime. Or they have inherited from a generation of people who were taught to save, Heddle says.ChinaThe booming stamp and coin market in China owes a debt of gratitude to Chairman Mao. The late communist leader banned stamp collecting because he viewed it as bourgeois.Since the ban was lifted in the 1980s, the Chinese have splashed the cash and there are now around 20 million stamp buyers in China.Since the eighties, the Chinese have come back in their millions, not just to claim a part of their own heritage but also with increased freedoms and increased wealth, a kind of reverse imperialism: we have the money and power now, well have a few of your Penny Blacks and your gold coins thank you very much.Risk and rewardDespite the rewards, as with all investments, there is a risk, something that Heddle readily admits to.Theres no guarantee. Its a very stable market because its relatively illiquid and its uncorrelated, low beta, so investors like it for the long term. Clearly if your financial situation changes and you need to get out quickly, it take more time to liquidate a rare stamp and coin portfolio, anything between three weeks and three months, than it does to dump your stocks.The key to investing in rare stamps and coins is expertise. Stanley Gibbons employs a team of experts that essentially pick the stocks, or stamps. Closelast_img read more

Threat Shuts Down School District Pay Parity Measure Gains Momentum And More

first_imgSupport for pay parity measure growsHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner is holding town halls to try to convince voters that the city can’t afford Proposition B, a ballot measure that would tie firefighters’ pay to that of police. It’s turning into an uphill fight.Mayor Turner argues that full pay parity would cost Houston nearly $300 million, at a time when the city is wrestling with chronic deficits. But Turner is having a hard time getting voters to see this as anything other than attacking the firefighters. Monday, September 24, 2018 Share Threat shuts down Columbus ISDSchools in Columbus Independent School District will be closed Monday following a threat against the district on social media. Columbus ISD is 80 miles west of Houston. District officials did not release specific information about the reported threat made over the weekend. Students reportedly alerted parents about the post. center_img Online tool answers questions on school safety, provides strategies This year, Texas schools have ramped up efforts to keep students safe, especially since the school shooting in Santa Fe. A new measure from several advocacy groups tries to make sure those efforts don’t ignore students’ rights.Students may wonder if they can be questioned without their parent or guardian, if they can videotape police on their cell phone. And what happens if they get charged with a misdemeanor at school?These are all questions answered in the new online toolkit called “Make My School Safe” from Texas Appleseed, Disability Rights Texas and the Earl Carl Institute for Legal and Social Policy at Texas Southern University.  3D gun advocate jailedEric Gay/APCody Wilson, with Defense Distributed, holds a 3D-printed gun called the Liberator at his shop, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018, in Austin, Texas.

Playing Just Cause 3 Day 1 Edition can win you a real

first_imgWhen a new video game nears its launch day, games publishers and retailers try to entice a (full price) pre-order with special offers, exclusive in-game extras, or some kind of competition. In the case of Just Cause 3, publisher Square Enix has decided to go down the competition route. Only, this isn’t a competition for Just Cause 3 swag, it’s the chance to win your very own real life island.The rules of entry are pretty simple. You need to pre-order the Day 1 Edition of Just Cause 3 on either Xbox One or PS4. When your game arrives on December 1, head on over to http://jc3winanisland.com and register for the competition followed by linking your PSN or Xbox Live account. There will be a special code in the Day 1 Edition box to enter, too. Once that’s done, you’re ready to compete.Winning the island requires you to top the Chaos Points leader board at the end of the first 90 days the game is available. Chaos Points are collected in a number of ways including completing missions, collecting items, causing lots of destruction, and achieving 100% completions in different areas of the game. For Just Cause 3, developer Avalanche Studios has decided to equip the player with unlimited C4 so as to increase the potential for destruction much further compared to previous series entries.Winning the island will not be easy when you consider the competition is open to anyone playing the game in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Chile. But what is it exactly you are trying to win?Square Enix has not revealed which island is up for grabs. The rules state that the island will be valued at up to $50,000 with the location determined by one of the game’s sponsors. There is no guarantee that the island will be “inhabitable, developed or reachable by any means other than a boat.” Another important part of the rules to point out is the following:“All taxes and fees associated with purchasing and obtaining of Island (including but not limited to attorney’s fees, escrow, and closing costs) are the responsibility of the Winner.”So if you win, you could end up having to pay to secure ownership of this island–an island you may never be able to visit or do anything with depending on its location and size. That could be a bit of a shock for whoever ends up winning, because who reads the rules, right? The good news is, you can opt to have $50,000 in cash instead, which is likely the option 99% of people would choose anyway.last_img read more

Google Creates a Free Music Streaming Service

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. How Success Happens This story originally appeared on TechnoBuffalo With the launch of Apple Music looming, Google is calling attention to its own (excellent) streaming service. The search giant on Tuesday said it’s adding a free component to Google Play Music—something that’s very important when trying to improve adoption numbers. Giving potential subscribers a taste is a smart move on Google’s part, especially with Apple Music on the horizon.Google’s ad-supported formula is a little different than something like, say, Spotify. Rather than giving users access to an ad-supported on-demand service, Google Play Music will offer curated playlists, a component Google introduced late last year. Not only will this option give music lovers a way to enjoy what Google Play Music has to offer, but it’ll showcase one of the best parts of the service.The curated playlists aspect offers up selections based on a certain mood, time of day or genre. And it’s impressive how well Google’s curation works, though some might find it limiting; users don’t quite have full control when there’s no on-demand component. That’s why it wants people to subscribe. Google says these ad-supported playlists offer more of a “lean back” experience, which is apparently what most listeners are after.In addition to being restricted to just playlists, the ad-supported side of Google Play Music only offers six skips per hour, and there’s no rewind or scrubbing through songs. You can’t even see what’s coming up next, which is a bit perplexing. If you’re a subscriber, you have full control over the experience, and can even edit, rename and save playlists for offline playback.When Apple Music launches on June 30, the Cupertino company’s service will offer three free months, which will no doubt be huge in Apple’s pursuit to be the dominant streaming provider.

Putting Patients First grants enable healthcare facilities to fund programs, training or seminars aimed at improving patient care and safety and customizing treatment in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, X-ray and vascular imaging. The grants are funded by an unrestricted educational grant from Toshiba.The AHRA & Toshiba Putting Patients First program provides six grants of up to $7,500 each to hospitals and imaging centers, and an additional grant of up to $20,000 to an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN). Three of the $7,500 grants are awarded for projects that improve pediatric imaging, while the other three are awarded for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging. The grant of up to $20,000 is awarded to an IDN or hospital system for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging across the IDN/hospital system. All winning facilities will then develop and share their best practices. “Since the program’s inception, Putting Patients First has awarded 50 grants totaling $490,000 to facilities that are making deliberate strides toward improving the patient experience in diagnostic imaging,” said Ernie Cerdena, CRA, FAHRA, president, AHRA. “Diagnostic imaging plays a critical role in the ways providers can improve patient safety, and we are proud to partner with healthcare facilities as they endeavor to reduce radiation, offer continuing physician education and elevate the overall patient experience.”Putting Patients First applicants are judged on their program plan and ability to share best practices. The applicants’ programs should address one or more of the following:Reducing radiation and/or contrast dose;Reducing the need for sedation;Improving communication with patients regarding the process;Improving patient comfort; andImproving the overall clinical pathway.All eligible facilities are encouraged to apply by completing an online application at either AHRA’s or Toshiba’s website. The deadline to apply is Oct. 28, 2016, and the winners, selected by the AHRA, will be announced at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting Nov. 27-Dec. 2 in Chicago.For more information: www.ahraonline.org, www.medical.toshiba.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享center_img Related Content News | Radiation Dose Management | August 12, 2016 Toshiba and AHRA Open Applications for Ninth Annual Putting Patients First Program Grants help providers establish and expand initiatives to improve patient care and safety in diagnostic imaging Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) read more Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more Video Player is loading.GE Cardiographe cardiac CT scanner at SCCT19Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:38Loaded: 26.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:38 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo LISTEN: Mark Schlereth, ESPN NFL analyst Count ESPN NFL analysts and former players Ron Jaworski and Mark Schlereth among the people who think former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is a lock for the Hall of Fame.Appearing on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM’s Bickley and Marotta, Schlereth made clear where he stood on Warner, who is trying for a third time to make it to Canton.“For me it’s a no-brainer, but I’m not that bright I guess,” Schlereth said. “Obviously he was a phenomenal player, but look at what he did come playoff time. You look at the biggest passing Super Bowl and playoff days, his name is all over.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Warner’s playoff record supports his candidacy. He ranks seventh all-time in playoff passing yards. He’s the only player to have five-plus TD passes in multiple playoff games. He also has the third-highest completion percentage in a single postseason outing.“I see that dude, he’s a hall-of-famer,” Schlereth said. “The eye test tells me he’s a hall-of-famer. I don’t know how long he’s been eligible but he should’ve been in from the start.”Jaworski, a former quarterback for the Rams and Eagles, had a similarly simple answer when discussing Warner on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM’s Burns & Gambo.“Kurt Warner is a hall-of-famer case closed,” Jaworski said. “I could form my own opinion but that’s how I feel. I love Kurt Warner and he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.”Schlereth also said that he disagrees with voters thinking of a players’ political or moral behavior. saying “if they were [one of the best of their time] they deserve to go in the hall of fame.”Warner, who played with the Cardinals from 2005 to 2009, has continued to work in Arizona since retiring from pro football. He’s coached at Desert Mountain High School and has been linked to a potential consulting role at Arizona State. Warner is one of 15 finalists for the Hall of Fame this year. The vote and the 2017 inductees will be announced on Feb. 4. the day before Super Bowl LI.
